Oh I'd love to join! I really think it's time I stop telling myself it's the holidays- (and packing weight on that I spent most of last year losing )
My aim is to drop 5kgs in February.
Haven't exercised during the holidays so I'm just starting with 3km morning walks, and am looking into the 5:2 diet.

February Weight Loss Challenge
I'd like to join please. I have about 3.5 kg to lose, but would be happy with 3.
I know my downfall and it's wine it's just a case of drinking less- as in less frequently. I'll have a couple of glasses 4 or 5 times a week, which is bad in itself but once I've had a couple I also start snacking. I need to cut down to once or twice and quit with the snacking!

I'd like to join please - aiming for 3kgs this month I think. I need to lose 30kgs overall.
I've had some success with 5:2 in the past but can't do that now as am breastfeeding my 3mth old.
Just going to be eating better (portion size, more veggies & mimimal processed food) & some light exercise.

Here we go again.
SW:- 80.75; so somehow I've managed to put on 800g in just the last few days since I weighed in at the end of January.

I lost 1 kg during January but had wanted to lose 3 kg. So 2 kg to go and I'll be back to my pre pregnancy weight.

im here, I love having the motivation, and sharing with others. I didn't do too well with January, but we have a brand new month. I have signed up for a 12 wk challenge at my gym, so I will be more focused now. marie.

Well, the sensible eating starts today!
I've got nothing but healthy stuff here at work, and I won't be having my little afternoon binge on chips or cheese & crackers. Discipline!
I'll be looking at upping my exercise too, as I'm too inactive.

I tried eeking out my cals over the day but I was unsatisfied and hungrier. And you'd have to go to bed hungry too. I just drink a tonne of water and herbal tea to get through the day.
I used to get "hangry" pre 5:2 but haven't experienced it since doing it.
I break up my fast days as much as possible, it makes it easier to get through the day knowing you can eat what you like the next day. But I have done a copy of "back to backs" due to social engagements.
When you start doing it you are more conscious of what you eat on the other days. I'd say as generally on the other 5 days of the week 3 days I eat really carefully and 2 days is looser to have a few treats. While technically you can eat what you want, I don't think I would have seen such good results if I'd gone to the extreme on the non fast days. I generally try to keep to my TDEE on non fast days.
I'm happy to answer any questions you have. There is a good FB support group if you are interested I'll give you the details.
